I've been here for a couple Restaurant Week outings. Elegant French cuisine. Delicate and light. Sample menu: Roasted Heritage duck for two with port poached pear and frangipane purse; foie gras jus* (add 20); Rosemary-juniper crusted venison with date-tamarind purèe, roasted beets, lardons, grilled winter greens and walnuts*
Juniper - The best meals make you feel loved. That's certainly how it is at Juniper, which we frequent on mother-and-daughter nights out. This elegant but down-home restaurant is owned by chef Justin Thompson (shown with blackberry-glazed duck breast, left, and bluenose bass with tomato jam), a booster for our hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every time we eat Justin's food, we just want to give him a hug. His hen-of-the-woods mushrooms are buttermilk-fried in good Okie fashion!
Relais & Chateaux - Tiny traditional stone houses, tucked away in five hectares of forest, in the shade of juniper bushes and holm oaks, have been converted into sophisticated rooms where you can while away your time in peace and quiet. Petra Segreta Resort & Spa ITALY #relaischateaux #pool
